Hang in there, Alunke! I understand how scary this is!
Do you have an appt with a LLMD that you are just waiting for at this point?
Many 'regular' doctors just have no idea what to do with us, so they tell us they can't help - this does not mean you will have to live this way the rest of your life though, as there are always things you can do to help yourself.
I use ashwagandha and won't go without it for my adrenal issues. It's an adaptogen, so whether your cortisol is high or low, it will help balance it out. For me, I had to start out with glandulars because I had sunk down into Addison's, and now have to use a homeopathic remedy along with the ashwagandha, but it is working well for me.
But, you don't want to add in anything that could make your adrenals over or under work at this point, which is why it's best to do the saliva test first to be sure you need it. Adrenals are touchy little buggers.
